A range of cyclic electrochemical experiments have been carried out on electrodes of porous PbO2 supported on a number of Pb-Sb and Pb-Sn-Ca alloys using micro-computer controlled potentiostatic stepping techniques. The results show that, in certain cases, the differences in electrochemical behaviour of the PbO2 can be interpreted as being due to the effect of the support alloy.
